Eight weeks in the life of moi…
Week 1: Back in the Deadline Groove
Between things picking up at work
and my oh-so-brilliant decision to take on more freelance work,
the majority of the past eight weeks have been ruled by deadlines. I did still find a little time for fun, though…
Weeks 2-4: Back in the Travel Groove
First up was Keystone, FL for a family reunion.
|Since moving away,
this has become my new favorite sign.
|Sporting my #teamlochte shirt
wherever I went!
|And keeping up with his races.|
|Spending time with family.
How gorgeous are my nieces?!
|And catching up with longtime friends.|
Then a quick jaunt to Charleston to see a dear college friend.
Twelve hours later, I was back in the car on my way to NYC for a little fun.
|Visiting my 96-year-young spitfire Gram.|
|Shopping among the Orthodox in Flushing (Queens).|
|Driving in NYC for my very first time…|
|…and living to brag about it (a LOT).|
Next stop was New Jersey to present at a conference.
|More first-time driving:
through the Lincoln Tunnel.
|Back to dorm living!|
|Needing a good pinch, I had trouble believing
that this small-town girl grew up to
co-lead a session at a Jewish Education Conference.
Weeks 5-6: Back in the Cola Groove
Home sweet home! But being home also meant being back in the deadline groove yet again, which Mimi did not appreciate.
Week 7: Back in the Family Groove
Labor Day weekend in Atlanta included a relaxing afternoon with my MIL at the Decatur Book Festival and more fun with my girlies.
Week 8: Back in the Teaching Groove
Though it felt as though summer had just started, Religious School started back in session.
Now: Back in the Normal Groove
Now, thanks to a wonderful job-related change (which I’ll tell you about later because I’m cruel like that), there are more evenings that look like this.
|We’ll pretend this was dinner for two.|
And more weekends that look like this.
|Yep, still obsessed with Words with Friends.|
I think I can get used to the normal groove.
(PS. I’m looking forward to getting back in the blogging groove soon – I’ve missed you all!)
